OBITUARY: Sri. MelapaaLayam Jagannatha VIJAYARAGHAVAN, Coimbatore, TN

It is with deep remorse and impalpable grief that India Pundit mourns the sudden demise of our beloved patron Sri. MelapaaLayam Jagannatha Vijayaraghavan, Senior Partner of M/s Jagannathan and Vishwanathan, Chartered Accountants in Coimbatore, Tamilnadu. He was 84. He is survived by his wife Smt. Vijayalakshmi, son, daughter-in-law, granddaughter in Coimbatore and his daughter, son-in-law and grandson in Chennai.

He was previously ailing from multiple organ failure and had a close brush with death five years back. But the brave warrior that he was, he came back to life like a phoenix and lived to recount that experience.

A benevolent, cheerful, humorous, kind and endearing father figure within our family, and a direct uncle to me, he lived a "larger than life" life. As a religious couple, my aunt and uncle were the patrons to many a charities and highly regarded by the Coimbatore denizens. He was also the Rotary Club President for a while. He hails from the illustrious MelapaaLayam family and his father Sri Jagannatha Iyengar was himself a community leader.

As another banyan tree falls within our family, we are still attempting to absorb the shock of that event. Even as we continue to experience the vacuum he has left in us, we are fervently hoping his fond memories will temporarily fill that void till, by God's grace, a reunion does happen to the rejoicing of one and all that know Sriman MJV intimately, and are his family, friends and admirers.
